is this. obama care is not just any piece of legislation. it's not like immigration. not like a tax hike. obama care is the core of the new expansion of the liberal idea. this is sort of the continuation of the new deal. the continuation of a great society. in a sense the way liberals portrayed it, it is the completion of the entitlement state. the one element that separated us from the rest of the advanced industrial countries saying we were the only one with people who were not covered. now we're going to enter into the realm of those who insure and protect everybody. if this collapses, this huge expansion of the entitlement state, this essential nationalization of one sixth of the u.s. economy, i think that discredits the entire enterprise of the expansion of government which is at the heart of obamaism. that's why liberals are running zar escared. not just one election. it's the ideology that the government knows best, the government will take care of you. put your trust in the government or as obama said you didn't build it, the government did. it can't even construct a website. >>
for illegal immigrants over three years. this is just the waste we need to know about. looking at those numbers, maybe the cupboard is bare because we keep doing stuff like that, that's neither here nor there. what's the make of this? >> it's a very difficult assertion from nancy pelosi to say the cupboard is bare when we spend 3.5 trillion in our budget and 1 trillion dollars debt spending. in all of that spending it's hard to believe there's nowhere to cut. >> here's what i find startling in this whole thing is that if you can argue with the record amount of tax revenue the government had coming in this year, it's obviously not the money coming in that's the problem. it's that to keep up with spending it can't and that's the problem. so they look at the leadership among democratic party that we don't really have to do much about spending. we're spent looking after spending. what we have to do is get more taxes to pay for that spending. that to me seems upside down. what do you make of all this? >> no matter how you spend it in a federal budget that big, you would hope that republicans
together a complex immigration reform system? forget about it. people aren't going to go for that. >> this kind of central planning, this kind of central planning went out of style, i don't know, 30, 40 years ago. as bill kristol said, the fatal conceit. the soviet-style central planning. to think that we can reinstitute that in the united states is nuts, but that's just my view. i want to bring in steve conover. you've got pretty impressive numbers here, and 129 million people according to your plans, according to your calculations. 129 million people either lose their insurance or have to get much higher premium insurance. is that true? how'd you get there? >> well, that is true. spinners like david axelrod have been claiming that this problem will only affect 5% of americans. the people that are getting nongroup coverage. that's not true. that's absolutely false. this problem of losing coverage is going to affect employer -- people with employer-based plans as well. now, out of that 129 million, only 18 to 50 million actually will lose their plan and have to start from scratch.
't think that -- unless he does a romney, become anti- anti-immigration and anti-gun and a whole range of other issues to take into the primary. if you look at our polling we did for democracy corps, one quarter of the republicans are base voters. are moderates. on the democratic side, two-thirds are self identified conservatives and moderates. and when we started our process of change, half of our voters were moderates. so it's a very diverse party. the republican party is not. and i think that will be in evidence i think in the virginia -- the virginia is the primary story because cuccinelli came out of a process where base voters had their say. this was not a base process in new jersey where base -- republican base voters speak out. >> look, i understand completely what you're saying about chris christie. but he looks at it like he's building a coalition of some democrats, even hispanics. and he seems to think, at least in a conversation yesterday with our kelly o'donnell, that a huge victory margin will give some republicans, maybe even some conservative republicans, reason to take
